Median Reconstruction Route 401 to U.S. 30 in 2016

With two lanes of northbound traffic riding on rebuilt and widened northbound lanes and two lanes of southbound traffic remaining on the widened and rebuilt southbound lanes, crews will finish rebuilding the median and installing the new median barrier/glare screen this summer (2016) in the last major stage of work in the U.S. 202, Section 300 project. The expressway is expected to be open to three lanes of traffic in each direction between Route 401 and U.S. 30 in August (2016). Get the details of current construction between the Route 401 and U.S. Route 30 interchanges in East Whiteland Township (Section 330) here.

During all upcoming work on Route 202, PennDOT will maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction during periods of heavy use to minimize the impact of construction on users of the busy commuter route. We will continue to utilize this website to keep you informed about the progress of construction and any planned off-peak or weekend lane restrictions that may occur.

Q. When will the railroad bridge be repainted?

A. The bridge will be repainted as part of Section 320 construction. Originally, the bridge was to be repainted under the Section 311 project. But that plan would have required extensive and expensive traffic control measures, with nighttime lane closures to sand blast and repaint small sections in time to reopen the lane by the following morning. Instead, the bridge will be sanded and repainted in larger sections when traffic is shifted for extended periods while the roadway is rebuilt, all at a significant savings.
